Royale Home Alexander Bed Full
Got these steps so our chi-weenie, and our mature chi could get up onto our high bed. The older one has been having a but more trouble jumping up, and we were afraid the jumping down would cause joint issues, so I ordered these steps based on reviews.
They do seem very sturdy, and yes, the dishwashing soap helps to get the dowel ends into the holes. There are also (not pictured in the diagrams) a 3rd nub on one side of the stair front pieces that have to go into side A, as there is no hole for them in side B (realized that after I couldn't get the piece to fit snugly).
The chi-weenie learned to use the steps after I walked her up and down twice, and the older chi he has been used to jumping for 7 yrs so still doesn't use them all the way up (he has very long legs), but uses the first and/or second step, and uses the stairs sometimes to come down. I think he'll eventually realized it feels better to use the stairs.
I would definitely recommend these - they are quite big (but they have to be for the height) so make sure you have the floor space, snap together, and I'm sure I will like the fact that I can wash the stair rugs in the washer.
